Good Grief!

I hit up Walmart today for some fast shopping. I thought now that gas prices are down that food was going to be cheaper. Isn't that the excuse they gave for the higher prices?  Anyway picked up some new born diapers for the twins my grand daughter is expecting, I figure a few pkg here and there will build up a nice supply.

I made eggplant Parmesan today. I tried a new faster recipe and I am not happy with it.

Now for the Good Grief!

We vote once a year for new or old board members. Voting time was 5-7  Of course some people don't show up until they close vote, at which time they count the ballots and hold a monthly board meeting. These meeting just drone on, on , and then there are always the ones who get up to speak, they just talk on n on about nothing that makes any sense to anyone but themselves. After about and hour they finally sent someone to find out what was going on with the counting. Now I know not everyone voted for everyone that was running including me. They said the count didn't come out right. Well they had to recount 3 times. People were getting really annoyed by now. Most of these people are in their 70's and 80's it was way past their bed time. They finally came out and the votes were read and who won and who lost yada yada. Now the board needed to take a 15 min break and people left. I had to stay because I had driven my sister there and she was taking notes. We all started to complain so they got down to deciding who would be what on the board. well before you know it they are talking about everything but what was supposed to be done. Again we had to tell them to get on with it already. To end this story the meeting lasted 2 1/2 hours. And these are the people that are going to run this place for 1 -2 yr terms.8~O. They won't be seeing me until the next vote and as soon as I vote I'm outta there.

Good Night All


  1. That's what Ive been saying all month when is the price of food going down, as you said they used Gas prices as an excuse. I couldn't endure such a meeting unorganized is something I can't handle very well!

  2. Hi Sondra,

    I had quit going as soon as I gave up the neighborhood watch. They have been working on the water lines here for close to a year now, Yes it needs to be done but that's all you hear and it isn't anything different either just shut up and get it done. One of the guys is so in love with himself he can't help go on an on about how HE did this and he did that. He doesn't really do a dang thing but ride around and brag. The meetings get so out of hand with junk that pertains to nothing.

  3. Hi Karen,

    And this time I won't forget to bring and electric heater LOL

  4. I don't go to any meetings that our mobile home park has because of that very reason. Some people just grab the chance to talk and when they get started, they don't want to stop.

  5. I don't think I could endure a meeting of that nature. They have them here for the HOA but we don't go and never will.

  6. Hi Gypsy,

    I won't be going to anymore that's for sure. What's worse is they really aren't saying anything just like listening to themselves.

    HI JMD,

    If it wasn't so cheap to live here I would move in a heart beat. I had always enjoyed living here but the past couple years things have gotten way out of control.
